Hello

Windows 7 unattended sysprep issue. I have created a answer file that should enable the built in Administrator. The .xml is as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
    <servicing></servicing>
    <settings pass="specialize">
        <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Deployment" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
            <RunSynchronous>
                <RunSynchronousCommand wcm:action="add">
                    <Order>1</Order>
                    <Path>net user administrator /active:yes </Path>
                    <Description>Administrator</Description>
                    <WillReboot>Never</WillReboot>
                </RunSynchronousCommand>
            </RunSynchronous>
        </component>
    </settings>
    <settings pass="oobeSystem">
        <component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
            <InputLocale>0c09:00000409,040c:0000040c,0409:00000409,0411:e0010411</InputLocale>
        </component>
    </settings>
    <cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim:c:/install.wim#Windows 7 ENTERPRISE" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />
</unattend>

But is doesn't work, the administrator is still disabled

Any ideas

Hi
try  this
         <RunSynchronous>
                <RunSynchronousCommand>
                    <Order>1</Order>
                    <Path>net user administrator /active:yes </Path>
                    <Description>Administrator</Description>
                    <WillReboot>Never</WillReboot>
                </RunSynchronousCommand>
            </RunSynchronous>
or this
<RunSynchronous>
                <RunSynchronousCommand>
                    <Order>1</Order>
                    <Path>"net user administrator /active:yes" </Path>
                    <Description>Administrator</Description>
                    <WillReboot>Never</WillReboot>
